Language Acquisition Through Motor Planning (LAMP)
Two Day Training: LAMP & Moving Forward with LAMP



DAY 1:  LAMP is an augmentative alternative communication (AAC) approach designed to give children a method of independently and spontaneously expressing themselves through a speech generating device. This course will cover the components of LAMP: readiness to learn, engaging the learner through joint engagement, and learning language through a unique and consistent motor plan paired with an auditory signal and a natural consequence. Discussion will include how this approach addresses the core language deficits of autism, device features that are beneficial to teaching language, and how to use those features to implement LAMP components. Videos will be used to illustrate the treatment components.

PRCs language system and devices will be used to illustrate treatment components; however LAMP principles can be applied to other products. Due to the limited duration of this course, hands-on time with devices will be limited to breaks.

 

DAY 2: MOVING FORWARD WITH LAMP

This course is designed to further the communication partner's ability to implement the LAMP approach at different language stages and across environments. The language structure of the LAMP Words for Life language system and use of features to support language learning will be explored. Participants will receive some hands-on time and are encouraged to bring their own device (Accent or iPad with WFL). Discussion will include assessing current language level, setting goals for developmental progression, and analyzing data logging. The presenter will cover a variety of strategies and supports to support language development such as expanding vocabulary in natural environments, modeling, teaching the motor plan, and how to use aided language input. Videotaped sessions will be used for group discussion about strategies that work and common mistakes. Suggestions for language development in school settings will also be addressed.
